for susan rice who wants to move into the white house and not a confirmable post but it might have been embarrassing. i think it's rather clear she misled people that sunday afterwards. the notion of some huge cover-up or some huge scandal or as one republican senator put it this is worse than watergate. no. it is a terrible and it was a tragedy. >> i think you said ten times as bad as watergate and the black plague. >> maybe combined. >> you put that altogether -- it's not even august, cokie! >> and it's not 2014 yet! >> and the birds are circling. dick cheney is stepping in and energize the democratic base as well. >> i don't think it helps the republicans a lot to have dick cheney stepping in, frankly. but, look. the state department and the white house have screwed up here. they didn't -- they didn't need to do this. >> right. >> and abc's john carl has a report out this morning gone through the e-mails and see that victoria newland changes the talking points and, of course, the white house said nobody changed the talking points and they all came from the intelligence community

attacks, and four days before susan rice's tv appearances, a senior state department official e-mailed her superiors to relay that the libyan ambassador -- she had told the libyan ambassador that the attack was conducted by islamic terrorists. the state department would not allow our committees to keep copies of this e-mail when it was reviewed. would call on the president to order the state department to release this e-mail so that the american people can see it. we also know that the white house continues to claim it only made stylistic changes to the talking points used by susan rice. ignoring the fact that senior white house officials directed the changes being made to those talking points. our committee's interim report quotes specific e-mails where the white house and state department insisted on removing all references to the terrorist attack to protect the state department from criticism for providing inadequate security. while a few of our members were able to review these e-mails, they were not allowed to keep them or to share them with others. i would call on the president t

trouble. i don't think it was an accident that susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who was kind of an unusual choice, was the person who went out on the sunday shows to recite those talking points. i think then secretary clinton knew that the talking points were shaky. she may have participated in making them shaky, but she did not want any o of that mud on hr shoes that might be caused. susan rice, of course, has paid a price for being the one who recited them. we also know, as you suggest, victoria newland, a state department spokeswoman, with a involved in the crafting of the talking points. she reports directly or indirectly to hillary clinton. she said my building, that means hillary clinton's state department, had a problem with this or that or the other thing and they were changed at her behest. secretary clinton cannot escape responsibility for that. >> megyn: brit, as a practical matter, you've got her writing that i've got serious concerns about the draft when they talked about al-qaeda. i've got serious concerns about the draft. i'm worried this is going to be used against

made before ambassador susan rice, who you see here, use them in her interviews on five different sunday talk shows less than a week after the terror attacks here. is one example of how the memo changed in a matter of hours. remember, this would be telling the public about what happened that night. these are the before and after versions according to abc news. emails reportedly show the state department objected to naming a specific al qaeda affiliate. and mentioning previous cia warnings about extremists in benghazi. in the end, officials dropped both references from the final version. the state department spokeswoman also added, quote, these don't resolve all of my issues or those of my building's leadership. it's unclear if that leadership included then secretary of state hillary clinton. the attack on september 11th of last year killed our u.s. ambassador to libya christopher stephens. state department official sean smith and two former navy seals tyrone woods and glen doherty. our james rosen live in our d.c. newsroom with more on this. james? >> pretty rough day for jay carn
